My top 10 movies of 2017

A lot of people have been doing their end of year lists since the start of December, but I like to wait a little longer just in case there is a late entry – I thought The Greatest Showman might have made it (it didn’t) – so here are my top 10 films of 2017.

Beauty and the Beast: Film Review

The live-action retelling of Disney classic Beauty and the Beast was under serious pressure to be good because the original meant a lot to my family growing up. Sure, we liked The Jungle Book and Cinderella but Beauty and the Beast is the first of the live-action reboots that I desperately wanted/needed to be good – and I thankfully wasn’t let down.

La La Land: LFF Film Review

la-la

I have not been this excited about a film since Star Wars last year and following the critical acclaim it received at the Venice Film Festival, my hype for La La Land was huge and my expectation level so high and it was exactly what I wanted and more. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it.

The Colony: Film Review

col2

This thriller, which has been renamed from Colonia in other countries, has been doing the rounds since the 2015 Toronto Film Festival and has finally come to U.K. shores. It hasn’t fared very well critically and isn’t expected to get many bums on seats, which is why I’m here to tell you to give it a shot – it really isn’t as bad as other critics would lead you to believe.

Why you must read The Circle novel before the movie

circle2

This week it was announced that Emma Watson would play the lead role in the film adaptation of the 2013 Dave Eggers novel The Circle. It is a technology thriller about a massive Silicon Valley tech giant (like Google or Apple) who gradually unite all the users’ needs, social networks, all Internet activities to the company, so it has almost totalitarian power and can see what anyone is doing at any given time. Here’s why you need to read the book first:

Pics: MTV Movie Awards 2013 Fashion

As usual, I have picked my best and worst dressed from the selection of celebrities that headed to the MTV Movie Awards in LA last night. That wasn’t a massive turnout of actors considering it’s a film awards ceremony- most of the celebs were models, TV stars and musicians. Perhaps Coachella festival had something to do with it. It’s the first time Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson haven’t showed in years!

The main winners were Avengers, which won Best Film, Best Fight and Best Villain. Silver Linings Playbook won two and Will Ferrell was given a special “Comedic Genius” Award. Very surprised at the lack of awards for Hunger Games and Twilight.

Here are my picks.

 

BEST DRESSED

Emma Watson

yes1

I just love the cut of this dress! The structure of it is amazing, although it could have done with a bolder print.

Kim Kardashian

yes4

Kim managed to make pregnancy sexy in this black minidress. She is finally dressing appropriately!

Kerry Washington

yes3

I wasn’t sure about this at first but the yellow won me over. This stands out above all the others.

Zoe Saldana

yes5

Zoe looks sexy with that slit! Simple yet stunning.

WORST DRESSED

Chloe Moretz

2013 MTV Movie Awards - Arrivals

I’m not a big denim fan and I just think Chloe can do much better than this because I have seen her look so glamorous before. This dress is appropriate for her age though, I guess.

Kylie Minogue

no3

This is horrible. I can’t even begin to describe it. It looks futuristic and I just don’t like it. It looks like there is tinsel on it!

Ke$ha

no1

This isn’t bad compared to things she had worn in the past but it seems very hippie. You can see her knickers through her trousers and hair doesn’t look very healthy.

Hayley Williams

2013 MTV Movie Awards - Arrivals

I think it’s obvious that Paramore don’t usually do mainstream red carpet events. The dungarees would have been acceptable if teamed with nicer shoes and not-so-crazy hair.

Just for fun….

Will Ferrell looked like a pimp daddy!
